R&D Report 1966-69 : Specification of colour sensitometric parameters in colour film telerecording E.W. Taylor, G.D. Judd A description is given of a combination of the spectral characteristics of the cathode-ray tubes, absorption-type filters and dichroic mirrors that is suitable for colour film telerecoding purposes; the importance of minimising flare in the optical system is discussed.
Keywords: flare; spectral; telerecording; phosphor; filters; light; tube; film; colour; dichroic; optical contact; dye layers; colour film; tube flare; telerecording display; spectral emission; shaping filters; veiling glare; film telerecording; dichroic mirrors

R&D Report 1968-40 : A set of phosphors for use in a colour telerecording display E.W. Taylor, G.D. Judd The spectral and actinic characteristics of three phosphors (red, green and blue) for use in a colour-telerecording display are described. Absorption-type filters are specified for shaping their emission spectra.

|''The Army Game'' - The New Officer|
A 1957 episode of the popular British sitcom "The Army Game", which was produced by Granada Television and aired on ITV. One of the earliest surviving "britcom" episodes. The show was not filmed, but "telerecorded" (the British equivalent of kinescope recording). Picture quality, particularly the frame-rate, is far below my usual standards due to poor encoding. I am pretty sure this is public domain in the UK (who had short copyright terms for TV broadcasts, do they still have such?), however I ...

|BBC Television received in New York - November 1938 - Alexandra Palace Television Society|
The four-minute compilation from 1938 exists only because of a technological fluke and the enthusiasm of two television buffs, one in Britain and the other in America where, thanks to freak atmospheric conditions, it was picked up and recorded on a cine camera placed in front of a television screen as the images came in. Andrew Emmerson, the British enthusiast, spent five years tracking down the recording and believes it is the only surviving example of pre-war live high-definition British telev...

|''Armchair Theatre'' - The Criminals|
An episode of British anthology series "Armchair Theatre" from 1958. In this episode, a group of respectable men are forced to commit a bank robbery. This show was not filmed, rather it was telerecorded ("kinescoped"). Unfortunately, due to bad encoding the picture quality is far below my usual standards. It aired in a 65-minute time-slot on ITV, and in at least one region was preceded by "Dial 999" and followed by "Hit Tunes of 1958", but line-ups did vary in those days from region to region...

R&D Report 1971-23 : Colour film telerecording using a shadow-mask display tube J.D. Lunn The development of shadow-mask tubes with increased luminance has justified an investigation into the feasibility of using such a display in colour-film telerecording equipment. This would represent a considerable simplification over an earlier colour telerecording proposal in which a system of dichroic mirrors superimposed the displays from three separate cathode ray tubes, each carrying a single display p...

R&D Report 1965-42 : Portrayal of vertical detail by the SECAM colour television system G.D. Monteath The SECAM system impairs the portrayal of vertical detail in three ways: it produces flickering moire effects at horizontal boundaries between different colours, distributes chrominance information from one scanning line between two or more lines, thus blurring it vertically, and causes vertical misregistration between chrominance and luminance...
